I AM NOT RUNNING THESE AT THIS TIME BUT INSTEAD I AM TEACHING THE APDT GOOD COMPANION AWARDS.

Kennel Club’s Good Citizen Dog Scheme

The Kennel Club’s Good Citizen Dog Scheme was started in 1992. The aim of this scheme is to have responsible owners and socially acceptable dogs. All Laughing Dogs Training School is a Kennel Club Listed Dog Club therefore I can and do hold all of the Good Citizen Dog Scheme classes.  These classes are open to all breeds whether pedigree or mixed.

The Kennel Club Puppy Foundation course provides a “means of socialising puppies and to lay down a foundation for education and training.” This course is open to pups up to the age of 12 months.

The Bronze Award has no age limit and “emphasis is placed on the handler’s ability to handle, control and generally care for their dog in a domestic environment.”*

The Silver Award “aims to build upon the skills learned in the Bronze Award whilst increasing the level of difficulty”* and introducing new skills.

The Gold Award is the highest level a dog and handler can reach in the scheme. “It builds upon the skills learnt in the Silver Award and develops more advance training skills of the dog and handler.”*

When the required standard is achieved for each Award and the Test is passed the handler will receive a Kennel Club Certificate.

Further information concerning the Kennel Club’s Good Citizen Dog Scheme and the exercises for each can be found on the KC website or by contacting Jude.
